I have the lockable one-way from K-Factory and it is incredibly good - quality is second to none. I only wish they would produce some rear outdrives to match their universals - the front isn't a problem, as the lockable one-way comes with K-factory outdrives.

The brake pads look great - do you use these in combination with the K-Factory brake disk?

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Robert.

It would be nice to use a one-way more, but the low grip levels and circuit configurations here in Germany don't really allow for one-way style driving.

Do you use any of the harder Kyosho rear springs? I reacently got a set of Evolva red springs and found the balance of the car to be much better. I was wondering if you've tried any of the harder springs, too and what your opinion about them was?

Cheers, Mark.

Default RRR Parts

I know this isnt a US website but they do ship to the US.. try www.benracing.co.uk I got my RRR off of them and Ben himself is one of the top 200mm European drivers. They have all of the official spares in and a lot of more obscure parts. Try this link http://www.benracing.co.uk/acatalog/Kyosho_Spares.html

Yep its a very good way if u dont have a setup station
The front can be done by putting a ruler behind the front wheels and using the camber gauge against this (laid down), but its not really that accurate, but okay as a last resort.

Default Mid Shaft

Does anybody know the part number for the Kyosho lightweight mid shaft? I can't seem to find it.

Robert, you should know.

Thanks.

I'm attempting to start a brand new engine with a starter box, but the flywheel seems to get stuck and won't move. Any ideas??

Try heating the head with a heat gun or hair dryer and if it's stll to tight loosen the glow plug... a little bit. Once you get the engine started tighten the plug.

Am I putting the car on the starter box the right way? The rear of the car is facing the handle of the starter box?

I guess... that's the way mine is. What type of box is it?

There is only one way for it to sit right. That way is where the engine flywheel sits directly above the rubber wheel on the starter box. Sit the car on the box and peek underneath. If its totally off, turn the car around. If it's off a bit, adjust the tabs to align the chassis.
